I want to move to Poland, but is it still difficult to obtain a visa for non EU nationals?

I do clearly understand why getting a Polish visa is so tough, Somebody once explained to me that the Schengen Area countries are taking it so hard on Poland to not to let almost anybody in the Schengen area so that can pretty much explain why the Polish visa is hard to get. Well I was wondering if Polish embassy still has a lot of rejections? I have been rejected by the embassy twice (for Tourist Visa) but I don't want to complain cause I didn't have much money in my bank account so that probably was the reason.

However it was about a year and a half ago. So I was wondering how's the visa procedure right now? I'm really amazed by Poland and I definitely want to spend some part of my life, I'm getting my Bachelor of Information Technology very soon and I want to apply for my Masters in Poland but I'm still so worried about the visa,

What things will help me to make a better case for the visa?
How about a CPE (Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English, The most advanced general English certificate) and/or CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and noticeable knowledge of Polish language? Will that help?

I hope I could have verbalized my problem pretty much well.

Contrary I don't understand why it's hard to get Polish Visa. I would understand different treatment for Schengen Visa, but Polish Visa? Would so many Polish Visa holders illegally crossed the border to Germany? To answer your question, I think that every applicant for student visa gets it. So apply for master level studies and you will get visa.

When you get a Polish Visa you can easily go anywhere in the Schengen area, even if it's a national Polish student visa, So it won't be illegal anymore, You can easily visit Germany.

Are you sure? Here somebody asked such question:

I've thought that Visa Krajowa = National Visa means that one cannot go to Germany with it. And I am sure that there is Visa for Poland only, because I've heard about student intern coming to work in Poland for summer, being cached by German border guards for illegal crossing of the border.

Actually, you "verbalized" a lot more than you think you did. No embassy is going to grant you a visa to any EU country. Ever. Forget about it. There's nothing you can do.

Definitely sure! If you have the STUDENT Polish National Visa it makes you eligible to visit any other Schengen country (only as a tourist, You're NOT allowed to work/study there). However I haven't got a single clue about the Work visa.

No embassy is going to grant you a visa to any EU country. Ever. Forget about it.

O tosh little boy! Bugger off todger! If you're not going to help then stop wasting the limited time of your valueless life.

For unrestricted movement within the Schengen area it depends on which Country you are applying from and the exact type of Visa granted to you.

Wrong AFAIK. A Polish student visa is just that, for Poland. I was on a course with a guy who traveled to Denmark from Poland on such a visa. He was stopped and detained on a train in Germany. I got deported from Germany and had his Polish visa cancelled for breaching its terms.

Speaking English is no real advantage here. It won't do anything to improve your chances of getting a visa.

If you want to come here get a college place first. They you have reasonable grounds to be granted a student visa.
